Subject: The reason why they cut it short
There was a bunch of Deadhead goons getting pretty unruly in the first few rows during Space > Morning Dew. Security had to pull some injured kid over the rail. The band saw that crap and basically said "that's enough for tonight" and walked off stage after Morning Dew.
Terrific 3 night run at the Philly Spectrum, though. All 3 nights had some really fun highlights.
And this is indeed a very good audience recording.

The boys came out and did a solid first set. Much more standard for that time period - 9 songs and closing with Box.
But the second set is the gem. Jerry really rolls with 1/2 Step, carrying the "Across the Rio Grande" refrain on into a beautiful build up.
*Also of note, regardless of one's opinion of the song* this is the final Lost Sailor. I think it is one of the best. Bob does a nice rap at the end and segues like a swiss watch into Saint.
I respect that some felt cheated that there was only one song out of Space. But consider that it was Morning Dew and one of the stellar versions of that time period. I believe that is all the band had in them.
Midnight Hour was a great encore. Bringing us back to our feet, stomping.
Give the entire second set a listen. The band is on...again it's 1986, remember.

As for the recording, excellent. It doesn't get much better than this when it comes to audience recordings. I prefer it over the sbd.
